Going to a festival is all fun and games, until you realise you have to decide on the perfect festival hairstyle! Maintaining a poker straight style is way too much hassle so you need something cute, practical and long-lasting. Thanks to some of our favourite blogger babes, there’s tonnes of inspo for you to choose from! We’ve narrowed it down to our top 5 game changin’ festival hairstyles so you can rock them in style!

5 Game Changin’ Festival Hairstyles

Mini Plaits ‘n Buns

This one is all about technique and practice but once you got it down, it’s ah-mazing! Mega-babe Sophie Hannah Richardson’s mini horseshoe plaits and tiny space buns are to die for! To get this look, you’re going to need some good clips, a tail comb and some high quality mini bobbles. We recommend the Invisibobble Nano Hair Tie as its super comfortable, will grip your hair in place with ease and you won’t have to worry about it snapping either!

Voluminous Ponytail

A cute ponytail is so often under-rated! Being one of the most practical festival hairstyles, it’ll keep your hair out of your face whilst still looking gorgeous. In The Frow’s voluminous ponytail here gives us serious hair envy, but luckily it’s super easy to recreate! A volumising mousse will boost tresses from root to tip whilst taming flyaways. Pair it with a compact Tangle Teezer and a Popband to keep it looking neat and you’re onto a winner!

Braided Crown

A festival would never be complete without a braided crown! Heather’s vintage version is so perfect for all those festival selfies, plus it’s easier to do than it looks! Before creating the plait, use an anti-frizz spritz to tame your locks and remove all tangles with a Tangle Angel. Afterwards, add a generous spray of hairspray to hold it in place and voila, you’re all set! Just remember to pop a few hair grips throughout to keep it held in place.

Space Buns

The classic space buns have to make an appearance in our game changin’ festival hairstyles! Our fave Lima has created these tight, stylish buns which are literally perfect for keeping hair out of the way at a festival! They’ll keep you cool by freeing the back of your neck, not to mention they’re out of this world. Re-create them by blow-drying your hair upside down, using a shine serum to add a healthy sheen and style into place with a styling wax.

Textured Curls

Embracing a textured look can be super stylish for a festival. Charlotte’s stunning curls loosely held will look gorgeous all festival long when styled right to keep them from falling out. To get the look, gain as much natural texture of possible by using a curl amplifier and leave-in conditioner to keep it hydrated. Follow up by adding extra definition using a ceramic curling tong and let loose!
